Life and Death (A Sonnet)

Death waits for me,
But I am not afraid,
Universal harmony,
The eternal masquerade.
I will live,
One foot over the edge,
A heart combustive,
My solemn pledge.
But death will wait,
As long as I need,
I have a date,
With a girl who makes me weak.
Love is the fire,
Eternal happiness and desire.

Tom Tom

Little Tom Tom,
Little kitten in the corner,
Mewing oh so softly,
Your love light shines luminescent.

I envy you friend,
Catching table scraps,
Daily pettings,
These things make you happy.

I wish I could be like you,
But I cannot,
I can still learn,
And take your gifts in stride.
